Would you like to dive into creating art more consistently?
Are you ready to explore, and gain more awareness of your own energy system?
Is it time to learn to let go of perfectionism and expectation and create from a state of flow?
Enjoy exploring how hands-on art techniques can help strengthen your connection to Self.
7 weeks for $222.00 + HST
In this 7 week online art adventure we will look at the energy centres of the human body known as Chakras and use that information as a jumping off point and framework for creating our visual art pieces.
You do not need to have any previous art experience - just the desire to connect and create. We will use movement, breath, and mindfulness as a connection to self, from there we bring to life and make our energy tangible through our artistic creations.
This is a beautiful way to explore your own state of being, get to know areas where you flow easily, and the areas where you may resist letting go.
Creative expression provides the tangible practice of being truly present, relinquishing what we think we know - trusting, accepting the moment as is, while remaining open to what could be. The only requirement besides some art supplies are an open heart and mind.
Upon the completion of the seven weeks you will have seven pieces of abstract art, you will have established a commitment to consistent creative time, and know how to take your energetic state and use it as the framework for the act of your artistic expression.
The Painting From The Soul art classes have been exactly what my soul was craving. I have wanted to “learn how to paint” but the other paint experiences I have had where I had to paint something specific felt so rigid. I felt tense in the process, worried about “getting it right". Renata is so amazing at creating the space to paint, blending spiritual teachings and intentions into the experience. I felt like my soul was free to express itself. I was always so surprised by what came out and the incredible energy of the paintings. I am so grateful for the experience.
Each session will include:
A brief exploration of one of the seven Chakras.
A guided meditation and breath work to clear your mind and bring awareness to your body.
A framework to begin your art piece. Guidance is always available while you work on your piece.
Practical ways to work with your mindset and art throughout the following week.
